about me

Hello Ruby Tuesday...


I'm from the States but have lived in various countries overseas for half of the last 16 years.

I've had the honor of representing the US (as a junior), Bermuda and Costa Rica in international tournaments

When in the States, I live in the DC area and play the WBL Unit game

Sorry, this user has no cards yet.
ATB - How did we let this through?
There's also a lot of cases where it's better for west to play the q from qtx when declarer plays a d from the board

ACBL announces new director of field operations
I don't like it. But I can probably appreciate the humor.
K98x vs AQ7x
If it's the same hand I remember, Joe Grue also knew about ten cards in two other suits because of the auction and previous play.
Bridge can sometimes be a stupid game...
Oh, I know people who'd take fewer than nine declaring...
ATB - 15 imps away
How weak can south be? Making a red vs. white takeout double of 3S...
Sven Pride's bidding problem: Q9654 AQ3 T864 A
Thank you for the input. I passed at the table and it makes on the normal spade lead Pd has kjtx 8xx 9x qtxx And declarer x KJT9xx Jx K9xx If John Adams's double gets pd to lead a diamond you can beat 4HX :) -
Input from Players and Directors Requested
Roland. It's more likely 4C is a slam try agreeing hearts than spades. But 4D is a clear logical alternative, regardless
Assess the blame (12)
To be fair opposite a red on white 3C overcall, 6C is a reasonable call with that hand
Daniel Vikor's bidding problem: AQ9542 T8 73 KQJ
Any values pd has will be working and all of lho's will be slotted with the possible exception of the K
